Two counties in the state are now under a Second Amendment sanctuary law or ordinance, according to updates from the website Gunrightswatch.com and media reports.
Those jurisdictions that have passed Second Amendment sanctuary ordinances and resolutions usually vow that they will not follow gun-control statutes they believe violate the U.S. Constitution. The declarations are not legally binding, but they do send a message to state lawmakers and others that the jurisdiction will fight such limitations on their right to bear arms.
Gun Rights Watch tracks law changes, executive orders and court decisions that affect citizens’ Second Amendment rights. That includes local, state and federal changes, according to Gunrightswatch.com.
Four states – Alaska, Idaho, Kansas and Wyoming – have passed legislation that labels the entire state a Second Amendment sanctuary.
There are now more than 500 counties in the nation that are under such sanctuary laws, out of a total of more than 3,000 counties.
